A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but it’ll only take about 150 to explain what makes this one from Hamilton, Ontario so beautiful.
Godfrey Cuotto, a student, was riding the bus home last week when a man with special needs leaned over and held out his hand.
The man, whose name was Robert, continued to hold on long after the handshake was over, which was fine with Cuotto, who also let Robert continue to hug him and kiss his hands throughout the ride.
“I thought I was getting pranked at first, but he just needed comfort,” Cutto told Huffington Post Canada. “Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else’s needs above yours.”
That’s exactly what he did, right up to the last stop on the bus.
Robert’s family later contacted Cuotto on Facebook to thank him, and let him know that their uncle has cerebral palsy, and is deaf.
Cuotto told the radio station Kiss 92.5 that he gets his propensity for kindness from his mom.
